Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. ~Leonardo DaVinci
I love this dress. I have had the pattern for some time, but just decided last week to make a little dress from fabric in my stash. I am not sure where the fabric came came from, I suspect Children's Corner, but it was so quick and fun to sew up, I am hoping my other girls will want one.
There is not too much to say about how I did the it. I love the light blue and brown plaid that I had for the trim. In the pattern Lizette does a great job of describing how to do the bias neck band. After I had cut it out for the size 10, I thought it was a mistake, but she explains that by stretching it it fit, you eliminate wrinkles.
The monogram is Master Circle; I had a few problems with
it but nothing too noticeable. I am out of cut away,
so I used 2 layers of tearaway. Since this is for Issa,
I will probably put a fusible over the back
of the monogram to soften the stitches.
I did have one disappointment with the completed
dress. As it was hanging I noticed a fold line across the middle of the skirt where it is soiled as if it might have been folded for some time. That is what I get for sewing from a stash!
